Buttermilk Pancake

Servings : 8 pieces

Differs from Basic Pancake, this is using Buttermilk instead that made them lighter and fluffier. This is become my family favorite recipe from now on, even my 2 year old son who always picky, grabbed 1 ½ pieces of these. His favorite when served with ice cream and chocolate sauce or with scrambled egg and sausage. Well both sweet and salty are yummy..


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk*
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoon butter, melted


  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla powder and salt. In a separate bowl, beat together buttermilk, milk, eggs and melted butter. Keep the two mixtures separate until you are ready to cook.
  2. Heat a frying pan over medium high heat.
  3. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture. Stir until it's just blended together. Do not over stir! Pour or scoop the batter onto the pan, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.


  • Buttermilk substitute with : 1 cup milk/cream + 1 Tbsp lemon juice. Stir well. Let it sit fir about 10 min until lumps up.
  • Let your buttermilk, milk and eggs sit out for an hour before baking to get to room temperature and you'll get increased fluff on these.
